There are numerous references to John Ivory Talbot , Thomas Talbot , Thomas Mansel Talbot , and Christopher Rice Mansel Talbot in the Margam and Penrice muniments in N.L.W. ; see also the manuscripts of John Montgomery Traherne (q.v.) (brother-in-law of Christopher Rice Mansel Talbot ) which are in N.L.W. For example, there are echoes of Thomas Mansel Talbot ' industrial interests in N.L.W. MS. 6582 . Letters which C. R. M. Talbot sent to Traherne are in N.L.W. MSS. 6599-6600 ; see also Margam and Penrice documents 9237-45 , and consult the N.L.W. schedule of the Margam and Penrice letters .
Of the four Talbots named above it was probably
C. R. M. Talbot d. 17 Jan. 1890 , leaving two unmarried daughters — OLIVIA TALBOT (d. 1894 ) and EMILY TALBOT (d. 1918 ), and BERTHA TALBOT , who married John Fletcher , Saltoun Hall , Haddingtonshire , Scotland . The sisters were generous supporters of many institutions and causes in Glamorgan , particularly churches; it was Emily Talbot who arranged for Walter de Gray Birch , of the British Museum , to arrange and catalogue, in six printed volumes, the greater part of the Margam and Penrice muniments (now in N.L.W. ). Their brother, THEODORE TALBOT , had pre-deceased his father.
